Google Gangsta Style

Gizoogle. It's not a search engine, but more like Google Translate -- this time, you're translating a site into gangsta speak! As its homepage says, it's "fo all you beotches who wanna find shiznit."

I found the Gizoogled version of my literary blog amusing, what with phrases like "So, it’s rizzle afta all. My eyes aren’t gang bangin' me." Another example will do. Compare this original snippet of text (from Slip of the Pen)...
"I pause in my thoughts; my mind goes blank. I take a deep breath, so deep I end up gasping for air. Staring at the back of the irate driver's head, I try to think of something, to justify anything, to vilify everything. But there is nothing."

...with this (Gizoogled):

"I pause in mah thoughts; mah mind goes blizzank. I takes a deep breath, so deep I end up gasp'n fo` air. Trippin' at tha bizzle of tha irate driva's heezee, I try ta thizzink of sum-m sum-m, ta justify anyth'n, ta vilify everyth'n gangsta style. But there is spendin', ya feel me?"

Dig it. Also, here's the Gizoogled version of this
blog.

I can't help but think this is another sign of Google's 'more form than substance' strategy that seems to be evolving as of late.

Cool ... but meaningful?

is it the google engine? i'd like more analysis on this. it'd be cool if they used the google api or somethin. :D

Nope, it has nothing to do with Google... so no APIs whatsoever.    



Blogger Corsarius @ 12/04/2005 2:14 PM

to daniel: cool, definitely. meaningful -- stretch of the imagination ;)

to ia: hm, i don't think it's the google engine...just entirely a spoof, i believe :)

to fleeb: i concur.
